between being alone and feelings of loneliness. these people said they felt, lonely, they are 64% likely to develop dementia according to this study? >> well, you know, you have to take a fine-tooth comb to this study. the study does say after looking at a couple thousand people in the netherlands over 65 who doesn't have full-blown dementia by any means when the study started, there is 64% higher risk for those who say i feel lonely at the beginning of the study, even if they're living with their families. the feeling of loneliness seemed to be associated with them later, years later, developing dementia. the trouble is, the participants in the study, the people who structured this, admit, we don't know whether these feelings were an early sign of dementia. so we don't know whether loneliness causes dementia or is early dementia defined by loneliness or feelings of loneliness. jon: right. people who are experiencing dementia might be embarrassed forgetting names and forgetting birthdays, and might limit social contact and feel lonely as a result. >> they might just feel lonely. they may
personality. i wasn't able to i think convey dylan's depression and his loneliness, so i got that way myself. what i was trying to do was nod as if i were describing you and sit here and say you are in a chair and wearing a light blue shirt. what i tried to do is turn the camera around and be beside you and project what the world look like to you, what you were seeing and what you are thinking and what you are feeling and present the killers and all the characters in the book from his side and that is what i try to do. >> host: you said you got depressed when writing about dylan. how serious was it? >> guest: well, that was not actually the worst. the more serious was writing about the victims actually. i had a bout of secondary post-traumatic stress disorder which medical workers and sometimes cops get dealing with tragedies. i had to the first year. i got a relapse seven and a half years and when i wrote two of the most difficult chapters. i wrote the chapter about -- for over three years. coach sanders who was the heroic teacher who died saving children. and then died tragically and he wa
of violence and that kind of loneliness and desperation that would lead someone to take these lives. it's really unspeakable. >> one of the most shocking statistics is that 40% of legal gun sales do not involve any kind of background check. >> right. >> that is astonishing. >> it's astonishing. these are the kinds of laws that can't be changed because of the stranglehold not only the nra, now we've got the koch brothers fund funded program in the mix. last night michigan passed a law making it legal to carry a concealed weapon in a church, in a school, in a daycare center and they also abolished the local county boards that were in charge of supervising the permits that do go out. so we've got these well-funded lobbies, these well-funded efforts to keep politicians on a short leash when it comes to any kind of common sense gun control, and so it's going to take a lot of courage on the part of the president but not just the president, everyone in congress and not just democrats, the nation. >> karen, you've worked previously for the new york education department. give us your perspective
again. to end my terrible loneliness. i miss you doug. she signed it b. it's a great way for people to write their own personal messages. we have people from panama and dallas. happy new year rick folbaum. i guess we are starting to celebrate new year many eve already. when they do finally get in the heart of the square there is no out. there is no bathrooms. so from 3:00 to 12:15, that can get pretty scary. we madder all sorts of things for what they are going to use to help them out. rick: i think you just made the howard stern show. >> reporter: i couldn't hear anything. rick: it happens to the best of us. before we let you go. how many apple carts are you standing on? report very just one, but it's a big one. so one big one. then actually in front of it is our space heater which we are not using anymore. that how we kept warm from 5:00 this morning. you just called out my height, 5'1". i'm never taller than anyone else. arthel: she is having a good time out there. you will be saying good-bye to an old standby in the new year. the popular lightbulb that will soon disappear from s
's not think that this is a warning sign. it certainly is not. it's the isolation. it's a loneliness, the awkwardness, that means he doesn't have close people near him to help him get through the hard times. he doesn't have people to share his issues and problems with. he doesn't have others around him to help him get perspective of what he's feeling and thinking. >> then again we should say the brilliance has been identified by people who knew him. of course we don't have iq tests to compare this. to however, with regard to a motive, no sort of manifesto or note at this point the police say was found. what does that tell you if it ends up there was nothing left? >> most mass murderers do not leave notes behind. some have done that and some have sent letters to the press before their rampages, some have made videos explaining to the world what they were going to do so the world doesn't misunderstand them. and they don't get mistreated in the press. but for someone who's isolated like this, for someone who's quiet and reserved and shy, it would not be his style to wish to communicate
